Paper Shelter DT Call

What a hot and wonderful day here in Missouri.  Only 105 today...  Suppose to be in the 100's everyday  through next Tuesday.  Thank God for air conditioning!

Since I will be coming back on August 1, I got to thinking I need a specific goal for each week so I'm entering the DT call at The Paper Shelter.   Maybe I'll be chosen and maybe not but I'm going to try. I love their images and have since they first became available.  Kept this card pretty simple but I do like how it turned out.  The image is titled Enchanted Love and can be found here.  I chose to cut out the image and then color with Copics.  I had so many Copics out I forgot which ones I used...LOL  Been a few months since I colored so I'm a little out of practice but getting back into the swing of things.  I'm so excited to begin blogging and creating again. 

I distressed the edges of the digi paper by Michelle but I can't find her blog or store to share the link with you.  Will come back and edit when I find it. TPS also has digi paper but I had this printed out, trimmed, and ready to go.  I cut out a second layer of the flowers for added depth. The center doily is from my stash as is the Brown German Glitter Glass used for the center of two of the image flowers.  I used TH Tie Dye DI around the edges of the DP, doily, and cutout flowers.  The butterflies are from MS punches with Fruit Punch Stickles and half pearls.  Mixed together a combination of Ultra-Fine Flower Soft in greens to keep her suitor from standing suspended in air.

Here is the inside of the card using a Spellbinder's scalloped heart die to write a little note on.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Make It Monday - Anything Goes 
Stamptacular Sunday - Wings & Bling 
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes

I hope you've enjoyed your visit and will come back again soon.  If you have the time to leave me a little comment I'll be sure to stop by to visit you.
"Love & Hugs", Carol (Granny)

Fantastic card. I hope you make the DT. Your card is colored so beautiful. The sand on my card is just Kraft CS and momento brown ink used on an old SU stamp of dots. It is the same temps here in Oklahoma, 105 today and they say Friday will be 109. We need to pray our AC hold up.

Oooo Carol, thank you! I love surprises! Thanks for stopping by my Blog today. Sorry I did not get to enter the CCAYR challenge this time, I messed up really because I did not realise we had to use poinsettias and I used Christmas coloured flowers on my cards so they did not fit. Judy x
